Lead crystal fragrance lantern.
Lead crystal isn't really crystal, it's just glass (which is defined specifically as not being a crystalline material). But it does actually contain lead, and is normally described by its percentage of lead (more is better, because it gives a higher index of refraction and thus more sparkle, which is attractive to humans and magpies). This one is 24% lead. (Yet still completely transparent, isn't that amazing?)
